Workers Friday prepared the stage for AquaPalooza, the free on-the-water concert event today and Sunday. Six rock and country acts are scheduled to perform. Located off the shores of Belle Maer Harbor in Harrison Township on Lake St. Clair, the event attracts an audience that comes by boat, Jet Ski, canoe and kayak. No cars will have access to the marinas. Last year, more than 5,000 boats were docked for the event. Saturday’s musical lineup includes rock groups Under Pressure, Meldrum Brothers Band and Capture Detroit. The concert then goes country Sunday with the Motor Inns, Jo Caine and headliner Craig Morgan. Activities and concerts are from 12:30-7 p.m. both days.
